RE: The movie thread
Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society / dvd
--A pretty good entry and again a deeply philosophical entry in the series on the overall plot and The Major's own issues.

Total Recall / BR
--Great Sci Fi movie.

X Men III / tv
--it was on so.... My least favorite of the first trilogy even if I thought the ideas were good.

X Men 2 / BR
--A classic IMO. I really liked the Wolverine origin angle to it.

Spiderman: Far From Home / BR
--A solid sequel, but that ending with Fury.... lol or hmmm

GI Joe: A Real American Hero / The Revenge of Cobra / dvd
--Ran across some youtube video the other day of a guy reviewing the toy line during this era, and with his mix of video clips from the shows in the video I was inspired to watch the first two 5 part episodes.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows / BR
--A solid follow up to the first one. Hopefully the 3rd entry will be good.

Bad Boys 1 & 2 / dvd
--Wanted to catch up on the movies before the 3rd. I still haven't gone to see that 3rd one yet though. 1 was a solid first go and I liked the 2nd more but that extended end with the island raid was too much.

So I caught Captain Marvel on a flight recently. I wasn't bad, but think it suffered from the desire of wanting to put Captain Marvel in the MCU but lacking a really good story to tell about Carol Danvers.

Brie Larson mostly works, especially with the 90's backdrop. The story falls apart though at the end as the hero's trial is just of her overcoming her doubt. I found the payoff unsatisfying and with her OP powers just makes the end of the movie boring.

RE: The movie thread
Been watching some things in my digital library and anything that catches my eye:

Zookeeper (Digital)- Not exactly a blockbuster, but funny in it's own right.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop (Digital)- Again, not that great of a movie but good for mind numbing slapstick humor.
Fighting with My Family (HULU)- I liked this one. It's based on a true story about a girl from the UK getting a shot at the WWE and the hardship involved.
Here Comes the Boom (Digital)- Possibly one of my favorite MMA movies. Good laughs and a little heart warming.
Minions (Digital) and Despicable Me 1-3 (Digital)- The kid and I went on a binge this weekend and watched the yellow guys. Every time I watch them I find something funny to laugh at.

I don't know enough about the character to get into all of that part but I think the set up of her origins gets into another big MCU kind of thing (ala Infinity Stones/Gauntlet) if they get into that whole Secret Invasion thing (of which I have only read about in passing so I don't know much about it).

To me though, it fell into the less interesting MCU movies ranking. That said, I do agree, that her powers seem OP to the others...

RE: The movie thread
The A-Team/BR
--just wanted to. I loved the casting in the movie and to me, they made a better origin story than the tv show. That said, I'm still more of a fan of the tv show.

Total Recall (new)/BR
--I still prefer the original movie but what I did like about this was its setting in a more realistic environment. Also, from what I gather, the story in the new one is closer to the actual book. I think they were more obvious with the tells in this one than the original one. I liked the casting as well.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (og)/BR
--I had gotten the DC BR Trilogy box set a while back but my last viewing was this on NF. I love the trilogy but I still think the first one comes off more self contained and 2 and 3 feel more connected. I really appreciated the compression artifact-less version of the movie. I tried to watch it with the dubbed audio and had to change it back, the voices were too off for me to like so I went back to original audio with subtitles.

Suicide Squad/BR
--Getting back in the flow before Birds of Prey. I thought the casting was decent but you could tell that Margot Robie and Will Smith were the focal points. Personally I think Robie sold herself as being HQ and that got her BoP.

Birds of Prey/Theater
--Again, Robie steals the show as HQ. I really like the personalities and the craziness this movie has. IMO, Huntress and Black Canary seem really under developed in terms of their deals within the scope of the movie--like their main tie to what is going on gets revealed really late. I do agree with my brother though, the movies comes off as a HQ movie and not a BoP movie. I think they should have made it just HQ with whatever add on title they wanted to add.

How did you feel about the switch made to a Black Canary?

"The switch" ? I'm vaguely familiar with her from the animated Justice League version and the other incarnation I am more familiar with is the one from Arrow. But, Arrow kind of did a lot of flipping back and forth on her as Black Canary and then White Canary(?)--not sure if that was because of actress contracts or whatever... And I would say I am not up on all things Birds of Prey.

RE: The movie thread
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo 2-4/BR
--Finished the first one a week or so ago and decided to go ahead and finish out the original trilogy. Then, just to cap it off, the 4th one. A good series IMO.

Sonic The Hedgehog/theater
--Pretty good IMO. Jim Carey was fantastic.

Mortal Kombat, MK Annihilation, MK Legacy/BR
--Was in a video game movie mode after watching Sonic. I think the first one and Legacy are the best two. Annihilation isn't bad but one wonders what happened after the first MK where they basically gutted the cast aside Liu Kang and ____ and went back at it, especially when the first one ended like a sequel would be coming.

Dr. No/dvd
--After reading that rumor article tied to No Time To Die I had to rewatch it. Probably one of my favorite Connery Bonds.

The Expendables 2/BR
--Just a bad ass action movie.
